Sealution is a start-up that was founded to improve data collection, efficiency, safety, health, and productivity on board of merchant vessels by deploying IoT solutions. For decades, the maritime sector has been lagging in terms of digital innovation.
At Sealution we aim to bring the sector into the 21st century. There was no solution to deploy IoT below deck due to the impenetrable (steel) walls that block all signals, up until this day...
Sealution's answer is the creation of their patent pending network protocol, a network of IoT devices that collect and process data regarding the vessel's crew and environment, and feed it to a central database to gain an accurate overview of processes, performances and irregularities on board.
The system comprises two key elements: Room Modules and a Central Module. The Room Module functions as a signal transmitter and receiver that enables the exchange of data between the IoT devices, in this case the Smart bracelet and Central Module. The Central Module is essentially the brain. It analyses and ranks the data by relevance and passes it on to a server for visual representation on the bridge.
Effectively adopting IoT solutions is a crucial step for the maritime industry towards improving its digital and data capabilities to ensure the wellbeing and safety of crew members, and enhance on-board productivity.
